Entering into the spirit of the thing.

When actors do that does that not mean the spirit entering into them?

Re: Entering into the spirit of the thing.

A thread on the Charismatic movement.
Thanks for posting it, James, since the Charismatic part of Christ's Church is the fastest growing element in the expanding family of believers today.

Actors Jim

People that take on the spirit of the carreter of the person that they are supposed to be potraying.

Then some actors are like the mass Mesmers or hypnotists of some religious movements are they not?

I didn't think you were interested in the charisma in the individual, Spirit filled believer.

People need to learn what truth is for themselves, so they can increase their faith in Godís words, floating off to some hypnotic teacher does nothing for a mature Christian and his faith in the Kingdom promised by Christ.

Hypnotic teacher?
Strange way to describe the Holy Spirit, James.
Oh, and before you claim a mockery of Pentecostalism, remember I'm not a Pentecostal - O'm Presbyterian; hardly conducive to "hypnotic teachers"/.

Do you follow the teaching taught by spirit Jim or do you just accept what is not too inconvenient as most Christians of today do?

2 Timothy 3:16, 17
All Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial for teaching, for reproving, for setting things straight, for disciplining in righteousness, that the man of God may be fully competent, completely equipped for every good work.

The warning is quite plain though is it not?

1 Timothy 4:1-3
However, the inspired utterance says definitely that in later periods of time some will fall away from the faith,

paying attention to misleading inspired utterances and teachings of demons,by the hypocrisy of men who speak lies,

marked in their conscience as with a branding iron; forbidding to marry, commanding to abstain from foods. . .

2 Timothy 4:3, 4
For there will be a period of time when they will not put up with the healthful teaching, but, in accord with their own desires, they will accumulate teachers for themselves to have their ears tickled; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, whereas they will be turned aside to false stories.
